Reduce Household Hazardous Waste

Tip Type

Leftover or used household products that contain potentially hazardous ingredients are known as household hazardous waste (HHW). This includes used light bulbs, leftover drain cleaner, and other potentially hazardous substances. You can reduce the HHW in your home by buying only the household products you need, and using up the products you buy for their intended purpose.
